Why I Can’t Stop Reading Good Books……..

by Edie Wadsworth on November 30, 2008

“Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become.  In reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself. Like the night sky in the Greek […]


The day after……

by Edie Wadsworth on November 28, 2008

In the afterglow of a wonderful day of food, family, football, and fun……I am ready to relax.  I have my books (A Christmas Carol, Uncharted, and Organizing Solutions for ADDers), and my knitting and I’m snuggled on the sofa by the fire…..with the sweetest little snuggle bunny you’ve ever seen.  There’s a small…..very tiny….part of […]


Thanksgiving Prayer

by Edie Wadsworth on November 26, 2008

from the Lutheran prayer book: Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good and His mercy endures forever.  Lord God, heavenly Father, You have created me and endowed me with all that I am or have as a pure gift of Your fatherly divine goodness and mercy, without any merit or worthiness in […]


Two days before Thanksgiving To Do list: 1. Clean out fridge.  Sounds simple enough. 2. Bake carrot cake.   3. Cook potatoes so they’re ready to mash. 4. Make broccoli casserole. 5. Continue to ‘ghetto-up’ the basement with lights and fabric so teenagers will have a retreat. Presently, it looks like a shady underground sports […]

7 Quick Takes……This is a link party… play along, visit here. It’s like 7 random musings…all in one post.  And you’ll love snooping around Jennifer’s blog.  Superb writing…..funny, smart, and I wish she were my next door neighbor.  She could possibly be my new BFF (which apparently changes weekly) ’cause she has ADD.      […]


Nourishing Words……

by Edie Wadsworth on November 20, 2008

“I am so glad that you have come. I will pour out everything inside me so you may leave this table satisfied and fortified. Blessings on your eyes. Blessings on your children. Blessings on the ground beneath you. My heart is a ladle of sweet water, brimming over.”                 […]


A little Christmas Cheer…….

by Edie Wadsworth on November 19, 2008

I’m on of those people……that my brother-in-law hates…..that decorates for Christmas before Thanksgiving.  Always. Every year.  Since I can remember.  And it’s not that I don’t love Thanksgiving.  I do.  It’s my favorite holiday.  But I have a lot of Christmas decorations.   And if I waited until after Thanksgiving,  I’d be stressed trying to […]


The Stages of Grief…..

by Edie Wadsworth on November 18, 2008

Remember the Kubler-Ross ‘stages of grief’ chart from Psychology 101?  Here’s what mine looks like after my purse got stolen right outta my car last night.   While my car sat in my driveway. 1. Denial- “Surely noone would just come and take my purse right out of my car.  And steal my ipod.  And […]


God Bless Texas…….and Donia…….

by Edie Wadsworth on November 16, 2008

These are some of my dearest friends in the world……This is mocha cake……This is their story. Donia, THE girl in the picture above came to visit Friday.  No she’s not from Texas and no she doesn’t host a show on the Trinity Broadcasting network. (I’m giggling).  She used to live in my wonderful neighborhood with […]


The heart is deceitful above all things……..

by Edie Wadsworth on November 15, 2008

I read a recent post by Denise and it made me think. It was about evil and taking a stand against it and not being ashamed. Her and I must both be in the same funk. Ya know, the one I’ve been in since I quit working. It has given me lots of time to […]

Mexican food and septic tank troubles…..go figure!

by Edie Wadsworth on November 10, 2008

So,  today is Marcus’ birthday.  He’s 22!   We celebrated yesterday after church with one of his favorite meals……beef and chicken enchiladas with homeade queso and homeade salsa.   And then of course,  cookie cake.  I would include some recipes but I don’t want my food in that close proximity to the Roto Rooter truck […]
